Our use of cookies

The cookies on our website may be set by us, by third parties who have entered into a contract with us or by independent third parties, such as advertisers.

Our site uses both “session” and “persistent” cookies. “Session” cookies record information for each single page visited, filtering and completing searches before the end of the session, after which the cookies are removed. “Permanent” cookies allow our websites to recognize you when you come back to visit us and remain saved on your computer until they are deleted or reach a specific expiration date. Permanent cookies installed on your computer following the use of our websites will never remain registered for more than 2 years from the date of your last visit.

Type of cookie

Why we use it and additional information

Essential

Essential cookies, as the name implies, are essential for the website to function properly. They allow you to remember your browsing preferences.

Statistical

We also use cookies to monitor and better understand how our websites and services are used and how users arrive on our pages, which in turn allows us to optimize the user experience and build a website that respects the needs of our users. We use Google Analytics to save cookies on your device and generate anonymous reports and statistics.

Google saves this information in accordance with its privacy policy.

Profiling

These are some Google Analytics cookies used to collect anonymous data relating to the user in order to be able to show, on other sites, targeted advertisements based on the interests shown.

Other Third Party Cookies

By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Google Maps, LinkedIn or aggregators of the aforementioned such as AddThis. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks, displaying the number of fans or including Google maps with the location of the company headquarters.

The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made.
